1969 Morris Minor Traveller


  • Well presented and retaining much of its originality 
  • Older restoration continuing to hold up well
  • Desirable 'Traveller' variant with charming wooden framing
  • Garage stored and thus nicely preserved


One of Britain’s best-loved classics and an iconic representation of 60s motoring, the Morris Minor is one of the most impactful vehicles to have ever graced British roads. Hailed as a reliable, versatile and affordable means of transport, the Minor appealed to families and the wood-framed Traveller offered the additional practicality of an estate version.

First introduced in 1954 and nicknamed ‘Woodies’ thanks to their distinctive aluminium and wood ‘dog house’ design, the Traveller is now a much sought-after classic. Well-presented and original examples prove to be the most desirable and that's exactly what we have here...

Presented in very good condition, 'VYY42G' is a pleasing example of the marque that has benefited from a historic restoration and little use since. The captivating classic has spent the majority of its recent life garaged and undercover but is raring to once again back on the roads creating a stir. Accompanied by an array of parts and a small selection of paperwork, this Traveller is an excellent classic for any level of enthusiast who is looking to enjoy refining a cult hero.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.

Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.


Car & Classic prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.

Auctions are extended by 3 minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £9,999 £100.00
£10,000 to £49,999 £250.00
£50,000 to £99,999 £500.00
£100,000 + £1,000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.

You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you\'re able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
